Everyone is encouraged to write a short email or letter to the shooting organizations below and ask them what they are currently doing in regards to the current restrictions on pistols / and for them to give more representation to shooters who wish for legislation to be repealed affecting pistol and full-bore self-loading rifle ownership. Stress that bolder representation will encourage more people to get involved and join organizations that they otherwise see as over compromising and stale.

I contacted NRA UK about their activities in the fight for gun rights, and they haven't replied. That was a few months ago.

the UK NRA are about as much use as a chocolate teapot. They don't stand for the ordinary citizen, only the "elite" FAC holders, basically it's a club for the boys who don't mind the strict laws because they have the guns and we don't. I don't think they even support defence, just sporting.

Not saying all FAC holders act like elite pricks, but the amount of forum posts I read from FAC holders that act like nazi's and even support putting low powered air rifles on ticket.

Us and them sadly. I think the right to bear arms is a right, not a privilege. But when you got these organisations sucking the government's dick, you know we are in trouble.

BASC seem to be a bit more supportive.

None of your firearm organisations support your rights.  Not one.  That is largely due to the fact they are treated as the experts and know what they are doing.....  They don't have a clue.  Other than sports, training, membership or money nothing motivates them. Yes they are elitists believing they are better than others who do not deserve to own guns.

Yes Sir they are very good at begging, collaborating and sucking government's Dick.  Which is why Britain is where it is.  Jellyfish have more backbone.

If firearm organisation had known what they were doing, that our rights are sacrosanct and must be protected at all times by what ever means we have, that would not have happened.  If trade unions can bring government to its knees so can firearm organisations.  The problem is they don't want to in polite language. They have 10,000 excuses of why it is impossible.  Starting at you cannot fight government to excuse their collaboration

They admit defeat before they even start.  So if firearm owners do not demand these organisations are never ever going to start.  It is as simple as that.  We no longer value our rights because our organisations do not.  The gun has replaced those rights and we will do anything to own a gun, sell guns, promote guns and reatain OUR guns.

There is none and no intention. Never has been.

The NRA supported the ban on the semi-auto centre-fire rifles post Hungerford.  A NRA staffer even gave evidence for the prosecution in the vexation prosecution of Mike Wells of the Sportsman Association for transferring a Buckmark long pistol to his club's FAC.  The prosecution turned on whether a long pistol was a "rifle" in the sense of the firearms act.  The jury decided it was and properly acquitted.

The NRA are the enemy of all legal licensed shooters.  I resigned my membership after the Wells case.

Now that really is a thought provoking question  ;)

Lets see the nuts who are frightened by guns or the nuts who stand by and watch gun control at work?

I'm going to need help with that one.

I still have to figure if that is due to stupidity or cowardice.  I know which I favour but have no proof.

What kind of creature goes to Parliament after the ban and asks for more restrictions rather than a ban?  Who makes no attempt at opposition or organisation of any opposition and then has the audacity to claim it Represents people (firearm owners) to government and GIVES away our rights?

What kind of organisation takes our trust and hope and tosses it on the trash heap with our rights?

I would not just have resigned.... I'd make sure all knew why I resigned.  Well done Sir.  Let the fools know what they did wrong is the right way to get change.  Sometimes it takes one, other times it takes millions.

If you want an FAC go and earn one like I did I became a member of a club after 6 months probation those who want a licence will get it no matter what everyone else will join a forum and bitch about the laws

As one of the elitist pricks mentioned, I believe everyone has a basic right to hold firearms, WE let the government walk over us, WE have ourselves to blame for not having an effective voice, if all holder's got together including shotgun holders in one organisation maybe then we could effect a change, we have too many small and ineffective organisations to make a difference in shooting and ownership...
